Belshazzar's Feast

We conclude our season with two collaborative performances of Belshazzar's Feast by (Lancastrian) Sir William Walton!

Following on from our Mahler 2 with St George's Singers, we are very excited to be working together once again on this project.

The Walton is a truly dramatic work that unifies the brilliance of orchestral and choral music making.
